We did a 5 hour tour with Joe on 8th August. I had previously been in touch with Michelle in the office, who had spent a lot of time answering my endless questions, and nothing was too much trouble. She put together a basic itinerary for us to follow from what I had asked. Joe met us promptly at our hotel, and immediately came across as a warm and welcoming young man. He was born & bred in Boston so had an amazing knowledge of the history and also the different areas of the city. He was really accommodating and very relaxed and easy going. There was no rush and he was totally guided by us and where we wanted to go. We were able to pop in to local supermarkets and grab water, stop off at the Cheers pub for a drink, call at a local bakery for some recommended cannolis etc etc. He made it all so interesting and told some great stories and some quite amusing ones too. In the 5 hours we managed to see a majority of Boston and we also took an uber with Joe to Cambridge and he showed us around Harvard. My son wanted to buy a Harvard sweatshirt so he took us to the best shop to buy one too. We had a great morning, and learned so much about Boston & its History. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who has limited time in Boston or just if you want a great day out.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and the narrative on the areas and events. We loved each stop Adam suggested. His driving was the best ever and he navigated the streets and parking giving us all the time to enjoy the surroundings. He is sociable, insightful and takes his responsibility for our experience seriously. Highly recommend Adam and Boston Private Tours.
Amazing! Adam took us to many points of interest. His narrative is off the charts magnificent. His experience as a history teacher made a huge impact. Michelle in the office went the extra to accommodate our late request. Adam is articulate and patient. His driving skills are top notch and he stopped to tour very interesting places. At north end where we wanted dinner he took us to an amazing pastry place known by the locals and pointed us a few great restaurants meeting our casual request. He walked us up the block taking us to an amazing spice store. Adam and his family live here and he celebrates history. Highly recommend this company and specifically Adam. His vehicle is clean and comfy. YOU deserve this special service.
I was able to contact Michelle last Saturday morning and ask about any availability for a 4 hour private tour of non tourist traps in Boston for that afternoon.
I really hoped she could arrange a tour on short notice and was delighted when she did!
We were able to tour with Svenja and planned a off the beaten path mission since we have toured Boston 10 yrs ago.
Svenja was knowledgeable and pleasant. Along with touring many new places along with MIT and the harbor area, she also took us to her secret tower amongst the graveyard in Cambridge! Shhhh… it’s a secret.
